Photographic postcard of the Morning or Evening Dance, Helston Flora Day, 1919. The dancers are dancing in Meneage Street, beside the old Post Office. A milliner's shop window, with hats on display, can just be seen on the right hand side. This is a fascinating postcard showing the facades of buildings in Meneage Street. Some of the gentlemen are still in military dress. Part of the Jack Stephens Collection of local photographs.
